Pink Mums

Hardy mums, chrysanthemumI had never seen pink mums before. They are a little yellow/orange and a little of the lavender color. Pretty.

Even though I’m sad to admit I prefer the classic colors over these new-fangled shades. They also had a mix of white tinged with a little purple. I think what makes mums so striking in fall is their solid mass of bold color amid the drab fall landscape. To introduce complex, variegated colors I think reduces the visual impact.

Still, the pink is kind of delicate and nice.

Who knew I would be getting into a debate with myself over chrysanthemum colors outside the hardware store?
